I just set up PhotoBackup for iOS. I run Arch Linux, so OpenSSH is not installed out of the box, but no problem there.
I have some questions and comments. Pardon me if the answers should be obvious. My chosen location for the photos is:
I found it very difficult to browse past Data. Sometimes I could get into the subdirectories, sometimes I gave up and just typed the path. What is the correct location on the screen and tap procedure to navigate into the subdirectory?
My local domain is called MyLastName.int and my "server" where the files go is called "nas". So technically the FQDN is nas.mylastname.int but the app finds the computer to be nas.local. (nas dot local dot) The app worked with both nas.local. and nas.mylastname.int So this is just for reference.
Is there a reason why the files get copied with permissions set to 0444 instead of 0644? When I copy pictures from the phone with Nautilus, they are saved 0644. Normally, I wouldn't care, but Nautilus and Thunar both put a big lock icon on them which kind of wrecks the preview.
During my search for an app like this, I read that some apps have the option to delete files after a backup. Is that an option which is considered? Maybe something like delete from the phone if the file is backed up and also older than X days.
Is there a way to put files onto the phone? I tried putting new pictures in the destination directory of the computer with the hope that it would copy the photo to the phone, but that didn't happen. Sometimes I like to put pictures onto the phone which were taken with another device.
Thank you for an app that is centered on *nix
